Album Review

One of the finest girl groups of the early '70s, Honey Cone was often compared to Martha & the Vandellas for a number of reasons. The fact that the label they recorded for, Hot Wax/Invictus, was owned by former Motown producers/songwriters Holland-Dozier-Holland made it an obvious comparison. Also, the robust nature of Honey Cone's harmonies certainly bring the Vandellas to mind. On "Want Ads," "Stick Up," "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show," and other hits included on this superb CD, the singers effectively combine sweetness and grit, pop sleekness and gospel-influenced soulfulness. To be sure, Honey Cone could pack quite a punch emotionally and harmonically. But as much potential as Honey Cone had, its success was short-lived, and the singers were gone from the charts by 1974. This is a fine introduction to Honey Cone's soul-pop legacy.

Soulful Sugar

Be sampled the intro to Innocent Till Proven Guilty, which is how I found out about this group (and which is still my favorite song of theirs). I now own all of their music (it was reissued on two CDs), and it's all fantastic. It's too bad they didn't stick around longer, because their work is often times better than that of the more famous girl groups from the era.

Don't review what you don't know....

Dude, if you don't know and haven't heard the group, why slam them with a 1 star? Makes no sense. I like them, and actually LOOKED on iTunes for their music. Stick with your 2007 garbage, please.

not monkeyin' around

this stuff is fantastic. I had heard someone else's version of "one monkey don't stop no show" and went looking for the original, but I stopped when I found this one. Their motown sound is unstoppable. Just try and keep me from dancing. See? you can't.

Edna Wright, Carolyn Willis, and Shellie Clark comprised the vocal trio Honey Cone, which only stayed together for four years but was still one of the best female soul groups of the early '70s. Although Honey Cone (which lead singer Wright formed in 1969) was based in Los Angeles, their recordings were Northern-style soul — specifically, Detroit soul. Martha & the Vandellas and the Marvelettes — two of the female vocal groups that epitomized Motown Records' sound in the '60s —...
